Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Midnight Basketball Australia is a harm prevention charity that runs a national community-based social inclusion programme to protect 12-18 year old 'at risk' youth from harm in capital cities, regional remote and indigenous communities across Australia. By developing critical life skills and work readiness capabilities to shift the youth participants out of the cycle of disadvantage, it helps to identify and embrace positive opportunities and pathways.Supported by a vast number of volunteers nationally, it engages large numbers of at risk youth to participate in the free eight week tournaments with every night including a hot, nutritious dinner, compulsory life skills workshops and tournament basketball games which are run in stadiums on the high risk periods of Friday or Saturday nights from 7.30pm till midnight, followed by a bus home, providing a safe and motivating environment.Our slogan NO WORKSHOP NO JUMPSHOT embodies our philosophy of combining learning with fun and requires participants to attend COMPULSORY life skills workshops. All funds raised for Midnight Basketball Australia (donations and other sources) are directed towards this program.
